If you’re throwing a unicorn birthday party soon, consider stepping up your dessert table with these fun unicorn cake push pops! These multi colored treats can be made to fit any color palette and are a fun way to eat a traditional birthday party dessert. Use an assortment of sprinkles and printable unicorn toppers to make your special treat sparkle!
I’ve had these cake push pops FOREVER and have been dying to try them out. Once I knew my girls and nephews were old enough to handle…well… a handle, I was eager to give the cake push pop trend a try! And I will tell you, these came together so easily that I will DEFINITELY be doing them again!
Here’s what you need to make these fun unicorn cake push pops:
To create these, I first whipped up a (boxed) cake and split it into the parts. I baked mine in two 8″ round pans. I added food coloring to turn one batch pink and another one purple. Bake according to the directions on the box.
Once cooled, use your serrated knife to trim off the top “crust” and make it a flat surface. Use your cake push pop to cut the circular discs needed for the cake pop.
Begin layering cake and frosting. For these I made 2 pink and 1 purple cake disc with frosting in between each layer. Tip: you can use a regular Ziploc baggie to add the frosting inside the push pop!
Top your cake push pop with a magical assortment of sprinkles. Yes if you were paying attention, these are the same ones I used for my mermaid party, because come on, these are both magical themes!
Finish the design with a unicorn topper attached to a toothpick.
These are now available in my Etsy shop with two styles – one with flowers and one with stars.
Both come in the one file available for instant download and you can print as many as you wish!
And yes, if you don’t want to go the unicorn cake push pop direction, these toppers also look good in cupcakes!
Be warned, I think I’m now addicted to cake push pops!
